The Doctor Beenie Man is the self-proclaimed King Of Dancehall in Jamaica. For some time now he has been referring to himself as the King of the Genre.
Beenie was always saying he was the king of the dancehall and so at the 2009 Reggae Sumfest he was officially crown "The King Of The Dancehall" by the organizers of the festival.
Even as Beenie is said to be the King, some dancehall insiders and the younger generation lovers of Dancehall music are saying that Vybz Kartel should now be given the crown.
Before Beenie Man takes on the self-proclaimed King Of Dancehall and was eventually crowned, veteran Deejay Yellowman was called and still is referred to as the Original King.
